Deigo was impressive last Saturday, very impressive. But today Goitia equaled his 12 consecutive Game 10 points AND won his SECOND CONSECUTIVE PERFECT GAME 10. I missed the first couple of shots of the first point because, again, the game came on earlier than it usually does. No matter. Goitia wasn't playing yet.

Here's how he did it.

1 Erik 2 Zulaia 3 Ithurria 4 Goitia 5 Barandika 6 Diego 7 Amigorena 8 Arrieta

1(0)-2(0) ?; balls in play; Zulaika - (got to this point when this happened so it may have been Erik +)
1(1)-3(0) 3; Erik +; overhead pass
1(2)-4(0) 8; Goitia +; dejada after excellent point by both
4(1)-5(0) 3; Goitia +; chula
4(2)-6(0) 3; Goitia +; two wall (left-front) carom
4(3)-7(0) 5; Amigorena -; dropped catch
4(4)-8(0) 3; Goitia +; left wall pass

2nd round

*4(5)-2(0) 7; Goitia+ big bounce

Goitia wins (7) Erik second (2) Zulaika 3rd after another "throw a bucket of paint on a Picasso" playoff (although the Zulaika-Diego show point made it a bucket of gold paint). It was a short but electric point, which shows just how professional these guys are. I have decided not to cover playoffs in perfect games as, IMHO, they simply dull the glow.

Goitia 5 points played 5 points won (+4 -0). It took 29 balls in play to win. Goitia had 17. First point and last were the most difficult. Great game for Goitia.
